I am excited to work with GHP; my goal is to be a value added member and discover ways to partner to provide quality services to the seniors in our area. Most importantly, we want to help maintain the health, well being and independence of seniors to allow them to remain in their own homes for as long as possible. VAAA and GHP have been working together for quite some time and I am happy to grow our partnership to get the spread the word regarding the various types of programs we offer, such as Arthritis Exercise, Matter of Balance, Personal Action Toward Health including other programs and services that work in partnership with seniors, health care organizations, and doctors to address health challenges that prevent seniors from being their most healthy selves. VAAA endeavors to meet the needs of all things senior”. For more information on Valley Area Agency on Aging’s programs and services, please call 810-239-7671.
